Australian luxury boating manufacturer Riviera was awarded ‘Best Sportscruiser (above 45ft)’ at the Asia Boating Awards which were held on Wednesday night 5 April, during the Singapore Yacht Show. With more than 25 awards being handed out the Asia Boating Awards are amongst the most prestigious marine awards in ASIA. A growing market and focus for all major boating brands.

Amongst the nominees were internationally renowned marine bands such as Pershing, Sunseeker and Beneteau. “We are excited for Riviera and would like to congratulate Wes Moxey and his team for doing such a great job. Fantastic to see that an Australian brand against such strong competition takes out this award, it once again shows that Riviera continue to make significant inroads into the global market. It is also another proof point for the Australian marine industry being on the rise and we are excited for the future”, MaryAnne Edwards CEO of AIMEX and Superyacht Australia said.

This year the Singapore Yacht Show has attracted some of the best Australian luxury marine brands, with Silver Yachts, Echo Yachts and Riviera all exhibiting their products to one of the largest audiences in Asia. “The Superyacht industry is growing strong in Australia and exporters see Asia as a key market for their goods. The demand for premium Australian products is high in Asia and business opportunities are endless. We have been helping our members to strengthen their business relations here in Asia for over a decade now and again we are excited for the future and the strong impact on Australian export revenue with the business our members are doing here in Asia” Ms Edwards added.



Trent Gay, CEO of Gold Coast City Marina, Mark Stothard CEO of Eco Yachts and Evolution Commercial, Sam Sorgiovanni from Sorgiovanni Designs and MaryAnne Edwards CEO of Superyacht Australia were invited to represent Australia at the Asia Pacific Yachting Conference this week. They addressed a variety of topics with a focus on the Australia-Asian business opportunities and the great relationship the two continents have established.

Under the Gold Coast City Council banner, Australian businesses Aqualuma, Gold Coast City Marina and Shipyard and Gold Coast Marine will start exhibiting their services to more than 14,000 visitors as of today. Having a strong presence of Australian companies at this show with over 18 companies represented shows how important the market is to Australian marine businesses.
